March 2, 2012 - Gatineau - Public Works and Government Services Canada's (PWGSC's) Supply Manual and Standard Acquisition Clauses and Conditions (SACC) Manual are now available on Buyandsell.gc.ca.
The manuals are located in the new Policy and Guidelines section, a central location for policy updates, information about procurement legal frameworks and resources. Policy Notifications (PN) will also be available on Buyandsell.gc.ca. (Please note that the manuals and active PNs will no longer be available on the pwgsc.gc.ca Web site.)
Improved features include:
- Better and easier search function
- Tracking content updates as a result of policy changes or revisions to clauses and conditions
- Accessible for readers using assistive reading technologies
- Content can easily be copied and pasted into documents created using word processing programs such as Microsoft Word
Work is still ongoing to enhance the presentation of the content in both manuals. Future updates to both manuals will be done quarterly and urgent updates will be made as necessary. The SACC Manual has been modified to address changes to the standard instructions and conditions as well as the general conditions. The Supply Manual will be updated in the near future to incorporate some of the PNs that have been released recently and other required changes.
